Assume, there are two OS X Servers, one with lots of free space and another that acts as an OD/AFP share. To setup the first server (the one with lots of space) as an NFS share, do the following:
- In Server Admin -> Share Points: Add a new share point. Under “Protocol Options” go to NFS and check on “Export this item and its contents to client list”
- Add second OS X Server IP to the the client list. Set the mapping Root to Root.
- In terminal enter the command ‘rpcinfo -p’ and make note of the ports.
- In Server Admin -> Firewall, make sure all ports from the step above are are open
On the Existing AFP server:
- In Server Admin -> Share Points: Right click a volume and select “Mount NFS Share..” and enter in the URL of the NFS share. Now this share will show up in the list.
- Click on the share and on “Protocol Options” and select AFP and check on “Share this item using AFP”
- Grant users privleges to the share
This is useful when there is an existing AFP Server that users connect to (which is running out of space).
